to that ex tents. when louisiana plays the big game, we're choosing my complexion. the second part of the dream was of a bill to make that kind of behavior legal, the civil rights act. then the dream was the right to vote. 18-year-olds would not vote. you couldn't vote on campus. you couldn't vote bilingually. we went to open housing and fair housing. that was another part. last dream really was about the issue of poverty. too much poverty at home and too much war abroad. that remains unfinished business today in a nation so blessed with so few and such abundance, too much poverty. >> he would at this point in time be 84 years of age and if he looked out across the landscape of america and saw 46-plus million people were still languishing in poverty, how would he address that? >> he would challenge the white house and the congress to make it a priority. we have the capacity to wipe out malnutrition. we can make the -- most poor people -- lyndon johnson was ingenious was helping people in appalachia. if you made that into a black community, no, they don't want to work or something,

'll catch those people who are here and violating the law -- >> host: our next call is mike from louisiana. independent line. good morning. >> caller: good morning. >> host: good morning, mike. >> caller: yeah. some of the points he makes, i need to get this man to go out and ask women to go out with me the way he seems to go any real problem you have so you can figure them out later. >> host: put that in the form of a question, we'll get a response. >> caller: okay. we'll start with a little bit of time that he's put on. he said that being -- there was no problem with having your own culture. that's all fine. i -- i'm from louisiana i'm supposed to be french-english but i don't wear a beret. the irish people only celebrate one day a year. they don't speak guy -- i have three or four more points. basically his points. >> host: thank you, mike. >> guest: first of all, there's nothing in our law that requires spanish or any other language to be spoken. you know, i watch spanningish--- spanish-language television 10% of the time. 90% of the time i'm watching english-language television or eng
, it's massachusetts. it's louisiana which is sort of unique in some ways. we'd all have a debate about whether it's good or bad, what's happening in louisiana. and that doesn't bring, the small school thing is in that mix. it's nested in that mix. what does a school day well? what would be better to farm out to a larger entity. you don't have a lot of that farming out in a lot of state digital have so much in california. you don't have so much in new jersey that superintendent sharing program is interesting, and hopefully someone will study that. but i think that's where you would want to move. are the things that a small school can do well, and then how large do the other entities have to get to take on certain tasks in order to be effective? >> again, i think your paper and the position that 105s doesn't fit all is right thing to take. interdistrict may work in some places, but then there has to be real choice if it's going to be the case but it has to be about quality and has to be about kids as opposed to the politics that we see floating around choice now. and the places that we w
in the senate voted for this.mary landrieu runs in louisiana as if she is some kind of moderate democrat. she is a yes vote for obama on everything. obama has been trying to crush the oil industry. she has done nothing to protect it. the state has been badly damaged by president obama's policies against oil and energy production. mary landrieu stands there and does nothing. she has to run for reelection. not only has she been attacking louisiana's major industry, but she was also the person who gave them this mess of obamacare. there are a whole series of challenges. i think that is why it is possible to get a year's delay in obamacare. i think only focus on the career, at the american people say we can do better. it does leave the door open. some democrats could step back from the mistake they made when they voted for a bill that they had not ever read. host: why do they keep saying the americans did not want the affordable care act when he was elected on that? guest: obama beat romney. there are a whole series of issues on the table there. if it had been a referendum on obama care, romney w
